When nightfall "came, Hedy had a -stomach ache. \V]iy was ilie resurrection of Jesus Christ on due first liasrer morning an event of such, trc- mentions significance? 1. It proved beyond rhe shadow of a doubt that Jesus was what He had chimed to be, rhe eternal Son nfGoii, and that all of Mil teachings ate true. (Romans 1 A) 2. It ptovcd ttuc thc Father had accepted thc sacrifice of Mis Son for the salvation of thc svotld and now the sins of all mankind had been atoned. (1 Corinthians 15:17). 3. It proved that Christ had rhe power to keep thc promise He had given His disciples: "Because 1 live, ye shall live also." Christ i rciurnrcritin is the guarantee of eternal life to every believer. Throughout the ccnturiei the promise of Chrisc rings loud and clear: "I am thc Resurrection and rhe Life; he that hcUevcth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall ht live; anil "whosocs'er livcrh and hclicvcth in Me shall never die."
